Recast "Full House" and Win a Prize!

Recast "Full House" and Win a Prize!

Every Wednesday on BuzzSugar, I post a Recast challenge, where I ask you to choose new actors for a classic TV show or movie. The reader who submits the best cast wins a BuzzSugar t-shirt!

Among the many fantastic suggestions of TV shows and movies to recast, one of my favorites was "Full House" because it's a multi-generational cast which is slightly more challenging than the dramas featuring a mostly teenage cast.

For this week's recast challenge, who could you see playing the even-tempered Danny Tanner, or the other two guys (Uncle Jesse and Uncle Joey) raising a family together in a heterosexual way? What about the three girls, DJ, Stephanie and Michelle? Or the lady of the house, Rebecca? Perhaps most importantly, who could do weird little Kimmy Gibbler justice?
Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, June 26, complete with a "new" cast photo. To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt,

Characters to recast:
Danny Tanner (Bob Sagat)
Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos)
Joey Gladstone (Dave Goulier)
DJ Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure)
Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin)
Michelle Tanner (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen)
Rebecca Katsopolis (Lori Loughlin)
Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber)

zooey is 27 years old....not a DJ Tanner! and Rachel McAdams is 31! At least try to keep it age appropriate!

Danny Tanner -- Matthew Perry (I want to see him in a fatherly role) Jesse Katsopolis -- John Mayer (rocker...great hair) Joey Gladstone --Owen Wilson (funny, semi-inappropriate...but that humor will go right over Michelle's head!) DJ Tanner --Autumn Reeser (Lets see her as a normal American teen) Stephanie Tanner -- Emma Watson (If she can do an American accent that is...) Michelle Tanner --Dakota Fanning (cant you just see her running around the Tanner household??) Rebecca Katsopolis -- Jacinda Barrett (great actress and beautiful) Kimmy Gibbler -- Amanda Bynes (She's great at the semi-neurotic roles!)
